Valentine's TableTopper

Well, today is Super Bowl Sunday.  Are you watching the game?

We do not follow football so it is just another Sunday to us.  My husband spent his afternoon trimming trees in the back yard.  As for me, I spent the day sewing.

So, I have a question for you still decorate for Valentines day after you Retired?

For me, I don't know if you want to call it decorating but I enjoy changing some things up with the Holidays, yes, even Valentines day. Like silk flowers, candles, centerpieces, wall hangings and table toppers.  I had a Valentines topper for our Dining room table, but needed one for my table in my quilt room. 

I wanted something small and simple.  So I started by making hearts in assorted Batic fabrics,

Then I cut a large circle and arranged them in a circle.  

I wanted to keep this simple, so I cut another circle for backing and batting.
(Gee, I think I am boring my partner, lol)

  I sewed right sides together all around the edges. Then made a little slit in the center of the back to turn right sides out.  
I pressed, appliquéd it by machine and quilted it.

For the back, I made a small appliqué heart to cover the slit where I turned it around.

Not fancy, but it looks good to me.

It even matches the mug rug I made earlier:

It was a fun afternoon project.  I have so many things I am doing, but sometimes it is fun to be able to start and finish a project in one day.  

Hope you all had a fun day, whether sewing or watching the Super Bowl.

Till next time,




I do not do football either--never understood the game really--I am a NASCAR fan though--there I know how to play the game--just go as fast as you can and run around the track!!!!
so I have been getting projects pressed to baste for quilting, hemmed a t-shirt, and got tracing done for 2 projects, one is in wool with an embroidered alphabet and the other is the first month of the bom for Buttermilk basin the bunny pulling the cart--though I just ordered the white wool for the bunny tonight--so will have to work around that till it gets here--
enjoy the moment-di

Perhaps it is a pity that we don't follow the Super Bowl here in France - I could certainly do with hours of uninterrupted quilting!!! Lynne.

I don't decorate as much now that our daughters are adults and living in their own places. I put one or two items out for the holidays. I like the small topper my made. And the patch on the back made it even easier to make. As for the Super Bowl, I don't watch football (I don't understand the game) but I had to watch when the second half turned exciting.

"Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the
same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!"

Excellent work! One thing I’d really like to reply to is that fat burning plan fast is possible by the suitable diet and exercise. A person’s size not just affects appearance, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorders, health risks, as well as physical abilities are affected in weight gain. It is possible to do everything right but still gain. In such a circumstance, a problem may be the offender. While a lot of food instead of enough exercise are usually the culprit, common health conditions and traditionally used prescriptions can greatly increase size. I am grateful for your post here.

"Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work?
I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary
daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!"
